    I'm looking outside and it is 5:45 Eastern and there is still plenty of light left. Another 45 minutes anyway, maybe an hour.

    Sad.

    I really don't look forward toward another year and long days. My happy time is Fall and Winter. You work all year to get to here and it is slippin away. Look at the bennies of winter. Ice cold beer, left out on the back porch. Fireplace roaring. Short days. Feel pride into working till dark. (try that in July).

    No ticks, no bugs, no skeeters,(shooters or insects) no grass mowing, no heat and humidity, no yard raking, no weed whacking, etc.......

    Give me December and January over July and August any day.

    Just hate to see the days get longer and the good times coming to a close.

    Oh yes, I love shooting trap with it being 11 degrees sleet and ice falling into my face, with 20 mph winds any day over blue sky 80degree days with the birds singing in the morning. I think I will just sit outside in the dark now just with my underware to cheer me up

    Bisi, I thought I was the only one! Winter has a beauty all it's own. In fact I just got back from a nice long walk on a cold beautiful night. one of my favorite things to do. I also love grilling out, no bugs! I know everybody has a preference but anything over 70 degrees is too hot for me! Mike.

    Bisi,..can I suggest developing a taste for Margueritas and Jimmy Buffett tunes..they make summer so much easier to tolerate...just remember rule #1,..no white socks with sandals after Memorial day..or before for that matter : P

    I'd rather sweat than shake any day.

    Winter can be pretty sometimes for sure,..but shooting with a bunch of guys dressed like Michelin men with snot frozen in their mustaches just is a bit of a turn off...come on April!

    Bisi,

    To each his own, But it hurts to be cold, it is uncomfortable to be too hot.

    I agree. The problem with Wisconsin is you get two weeks out of the year that you can have the windows open, and be comfortable. That usually is around the end of September. Otherwise, it is either to cold or, to hot and humid. Humidity is the problem here mostly. Anything over 60 degrees and 70% humidity is uncomfortable for me. You can only take so many cloths off, before you become offensive. You can always dress for cold.
